With over 35 years’ in aviation maintenance, Scott is a respected and accomplished aviation professional.

Through a keen interest, numerous courses and the attainment of a Bachelor of Aerospace Engineering Degree, he has the knowledge and proven ability to provide innovative solutions, bringing positive benefits, to the operator.  Areas of expertise:
